    Statement as of 12:48 AM EST on January 24, 2005

    … Blizzard Warning remains in effect until 6 PM EST this evening
    for Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts…

    The blizzard is winding down northwest of Boston but it will be not
    until sometime this evening that the dangerous combination of high
    wind… heavy snow and blowing snow tapers to bands of squalls.

    At least another 3 inches is slated for parts of southeastern New
    England this afternoon… storm totals rivaling all time records.

    Thirty inches has already occurred in parts of the warning area near
    Boston and amounts may exceed 33 inches by the time this storm tapers
    down tonight in Plymouth and Barnstable counties... along with 7 foot

    A blowing Snow Advisory may be needed tonight for the exposed parts
    of coastal southeast New England.

    Bitter cold will ease a bit the next couple of days but another surge
    of very cold air is expected here toward the middle or end of the
    week. Temperatures are not likely to rise above freezing before next
    Sunday or Monday.

    Northerly winds will continue gusting 65 to 75 mph on Barnstable and
    Nantucket counties this afternoon. This is still an extremely
    dangerous life threatening storm from bostons North Shore through
    Boston to Chatham and Nantucket because of severe blowing and
    drifting of the newly fallen snow and tumbling temperatures.

    Power outages should be widespread this afternoon on the cape and

    Drifts of at least 6 feet are occurring.

    A Blizzard Warning is issued when sustained wind speeds or frequent
    gusts of over 35 mph are expected with considerable falling and/or
    blowing and drifting snow. Those venturing outdoors may become
    lost or disoriented... so persons in the warning area of coastal
    Massachusetts are advised to stay indoors.

    Any travel is strongly discouraged. If you leave the safety of being
    indoors… you are putting your life at risk.
